In the middle of December, there aren't a lot of restaurants open in Virginia Beach, But Waterman's was open and inviting! The food was very good and the service was cheerful and caring. The ambiance is super. While it was in the Christmas season the noise level from the bar and a large party on the second floor hardly noticeable.... More

Absolutely wonderful. Our server Jessica was a peach and steared us to the three yummy things in my title. Excellent value and even leftovers. This is where the locals eat and we loved it and plan to go back.

Watermans offers a wide variety of seafood on their menu, a long with other options for the kiddos. Two of my favorite appetizers there is the crab dip and she crab soup, they are to die for. The location is great, you can also get an ocean view. If and when you go also be sure to have an orange... More

The place is great with friendly wait staff. We placed our order of seafood.It did not take long for us to wait for our order I had broiled combination platter and my husband had fried combination platter. They were both fresh tasting and tender, especially the scallops. Thumbs up for us.

The were 5 legs on the crab legs, my father had scallops and jumbo shrimp (shrimp were delicious). My husband had the crab... More

The restaurant is a boardwalk front location so there is a great view of the ocean from most seats. There were quite a few holiday parties the night we were there so it was rather noisy. While the atmosphere was great, the food quality was somewhat less than we had hoped for. I had the tuna tacos and there was... More

My wife and I along with a friend were taking a class over the weekend at the Virginia Aquarium so I searched nearby for a place to eat and ran across this restaurant. It is a pretty large place right on the beach and they have free valet parking. This would be a good place to go for a group... More

My wife and I were invited to join another couple who are our friends for supper last week. We had never been to Waterman's and were a bit hesitant to go because we've been residents of the Beach for over 13 years and already have our "favorite" seafood restaurants. We were grateful to find that on this rainy evening that... More

We didn't eat but they do have great drinks! Price very reasonable. They had a local band Friday night and they played great variety.

From walking in the lobby to leaving, everything was great! Can't beat the location and the outdoor area is right on the water. The staff knew the menu and wine list and were able to answer all of our questions. Dinner was awsome and the price was not bad. We had such a great expierence that we returned 2 nights... More
